PSN Returning with Two Free Games

18 May 2011 | Posted by

PSN LogoIn case you didn’t notice, Playstation Network has begun its return. It seems that the resurrection of the downed PSN kicks off with a Customer Appreciation program leading the way. Once the PSN Store is back up and running you can snag yourself two free games from a list of several titles (within the first 30 days) such as Little Big Planet, inFAMOUS and Super Stardust HD. I personally will pick up Little Big Planet and inFAMOUS. You can check out more Q&A about the PSN restoration here.

There are some other bonuses too, including some “on us” movie rentals, and some PSN Plus time as well. It’s all a fairly gracious package from Sony to try to smooth things over, but there are obviously going to be people that come down on both sides of this. Does two free games and a “we’re sorry” make up for the time lost and possible personal information damage? What are your thoughts on the whole issue? Still trust Sony?

    I could be wrong, but it seems most people are excited about the return of PSN, rather than put off or cynical about it. I haven’t seen the list of possible free games (already own all three of the ones you mention), but it seems they’re doing a good amount to lessen the hurt. Lame (and desperate) as it sounds, I felt like something was missing while it was down, and now that I can see that “Signed In” message in the top right, I’m whole again.

    Now if only the freakin’ Demon’s Souls servers would come back up!!!

    I think they’re doing their best, I mean there isn’t really a whole lot more they can do than offer free content and an apology. They’ve said very few people are cancelling/leaving the service, so I agree with dp and would say most people are just happy to be playing again.

    I’m happy that they’re apologising in such a generous way… BUT I ALREADY HAVE THOSE THREE GAMES! :(
    Certainly there is cause for concern regarding personal info but I’m going to be optimistic about it and hope the person is caught before anything bad happens. To anyone who has details on PSN, I really hope nothing bad happens.
    At least companies can use this unfortunate event as an incentive to bump up their security.
